“Thoughtful and astute performances by the entire cast honor the sincere, funny and occasionally heart-wrenching text to great effect...Macdonald’s writing is as heartbreaking as it is hilarious; her ability to keep the story well-paced and consistently bring laughs is undeniably impressive...A few moments towards the end fall a bit flat...It all still works, but I found myself wanting to see more interactions between these three women, which is a testament to the writing, acting and directing.” Full Review

The Golfer
NY Theatre Guide

"Its blistering pace serves to keep any scene from dragging on too long, but conversely, it also prevents the audience from forming any real relationships with any of the recurring characters...There are some solid comedic exchanges, but I found myself wanting more...'The Golfer' is pure, fringe fun; it’s 80 minutes of imperfect, unbridled lunacy that refuses to cater to expectations or tropes."
